been very one-sided. >> bill: right. so that the obama administration knows that, the democratic party knows it's all going their way, all the propaganda, all the stuff that reaches the american people through the myriad of media outlets is all about tax rates for the rich and nothing about getting spendin spending r control. they walk into the room and go blank you guys, we're not giving you anything. we know the real story won't be reported. it's frightening. >> it is. the other piece of this, bill, that's very important is the consequence of not tackling the entitlement spending and reforming the programs so they cost less. it's very severe. they're not immediate. the president has what he considers to be some time to either deal with this or perhaps not deal with it and he leaves office and it's for the next person to deal with. now, it would take a lot of courage for him and he would have to break a lot of china in his own party to say we've got a short-term fiscal cliff and we've got a bi bigger one that that. i want to head it all off, and it will take a bargain to do it and i'm

's a problem. and particularly because anywhere from 71-75% of the latino community voted for president obama. a high water mark since bill clinton's reelection against bob dole in '96. they just don't know what to make of it. and the first thing they gravitate toward is this old line of having to change the tone or the message. what they're not getting is it's not just about changing the tone. it's not just about not talking ablt electrified fences and not being uncivil. it's also about fundamentally changing the policies that they embrace. being more willing to engage in conversations and discussions and actually get comprehensive reform done. get the dream act done. think about and include the latino community as part of the fabric, the family of the united states, which it clearly is and always has been, when they think about the latino community, you can tell that both in tone and in policy, they think of it as something foreign. and that's not the case at all. so they need to improve both the tone, but, more importantly, they need to change the policy behind the party. >> talking about
president obama against the bill. this marks a major shift of momentum for the >> states all over america are forced to deal with crippling debt and reckless spending. here to comment on that by the man who is rumored to be running for the chairman of the republican national committee. former congressman j.c. watts. >> i'm doing will. >> your sooners got a bowl game in memphis this year. congratulations. >> well, it's actually the tulsa hurricane. the sooners are going to be in dallas, versus johnny football -- >> sorry, i messed it up. >> that's okay. i forgive you. >> notre dame is going to beat alabama -- we have that in the "hannity" household. >> your wife's probably going to win that argument. we are wasting time. are you running for chair of the rnc. >> i heard an rnc member say, you know, last weekend, said, you know, unfortunately, he said, we have had one black guy in the chairmanship. we have been there, done that. we don't need to go there. this is never -- i have never said that you needed a black person there. i never said you needed a white, red, yellow or brown -- or even
rejected last-minute pleas to delay the bill's passage. even president obama, who won michigan by ten points last month, was unable to sway state lawmakers at the last minute during his visit to detroit. but governor snyder says it was the union who started this fight in the first place. >> i asked them not to go forward, and the reasons i said it is you're going to start a very divisive discussion regarding collective bargaining first, but it also will get into right to work. the right-to-work discussion continued to escalate and was becoming very divisive. the way i viewed it is it's on the table, it's a hot issue, let's show some leadership. so i said when i reviewed it, it's a good thing. it's about being pro-worker, it's about economic development. we will get more jobs coming to michigan because we're going to be more competitive. >> the governor also argued his state's union battle was completely different from what unfolded in wisconsin and ohio. >> i think it's important to make a distinction with wisconsin and ohio. that was about collective bargaining. that was about the re
obama would not have won michigan without labor and wouldn't have won ohio without labor >> bill: the president said this is all political. this is political payback. isn't it? >> absolutely. this is a packyback. they are so angry. they can't believe they lost michigan you heard those stories about dick morris and karl rove thinking they were going to win. even mitt romney didn't even have a concession speech written up. they were so convinced they were going to win. by the way, i saw on the news last night sheldon adelson, the guy with the casinos in las vegas he is starting all over again. he said i will spend $100 million against labor because they realize and these guys all talk together the karl roves, the norquists. >> the koch brothers. >> these people all talk to each other and figure out, how are we going to take over? and what the hell went wrong? they were so convinced that they had the money, that they could win this race now they think we have to go after labor because they are the problem. >> that's why we lost ohio that's why we lost mich
is right. this was the exact thing they voters for obama decided to shoot down this union bill. >> it's surprising. >> it caught us all by surprise. it isn't going to be like wisconsin. i think this bill is going to pass. and the situation in wisconsin was different. you had to get a quorum, and they tried to prevent a vote on the bill and took a month of protests. i don't think that will happen. just need a simple majority in michigan and they will pass the bill and they won't have a chance to repeal it until 2014. they will have to win back the senate, the house and the governor. >> it is likely to stop in michigan. you look at states with right to work legislation, the whole deep south and a couple states in the west but the upper midwest and northeast has tried to stay away from that because of the strong tradition of union organizing in the state. you have indiana going the other direction and michigan looking like they might, and wisconsin could be next up although the governor hasn't said how he's going to proceed on that and i think it's going to embolden the an eye union forc
, fighting obama care. even though the people voted for it twice. tennessee governor bill haslem said today his state would not be creating a state-run health insurance exchange. tennessee has now joined 20 other states refusing to participate in state-run health care exchanges. states opting out automatically default to an exchange run by the federal government. republican states don't like the exchanges. but the president said, well, wasn't even his idea. >> one of these reforms is the creation of the health insurance exchange. this is one of the most important reforms, and by the way, originally i should point out, a republican idea. imagine that. >> these health insurance exchanges are critical. they force insurance companies to play by the same set of rules and provide a market place for people to pick and choose their health care. the result is supposed to be lower health care costs. so far, 17 states have declared state-run exchanges. six are planning a partnership exchange with the federal government. and six are undecided. these states have until this friday to inform washington of
if congress does nothing, and president obama is the only person that can sign a bill into law and quite honestly, senator harry reid is the only person in the senate that can pass a bill in the senate as well. it sounds like people like howard dean want everybody's taxes to go up. maybe we should feel fortunate that president obama only wants the top two% to g two percent t. >> greta: do you anticipate republicans will vote for a rate increase if this should come to a vote? >> i don't believe they'll vote for a rate increase. what we'll vote for hopefully is to extend the current tax rates permanently and start working with president obama on true pro growth tax reform, but again, it sounds like treasury secretary geithner is happy to take the economy off the fiscal cliff, and again, if president obama wants to do that, he can do that, it sounds like that's exactly where he wants to go, and you know, what is kind of amazing, maybe republicans should take, you know, a victory lap from the fact that we've actually convinced democrats it's a good thing to maintain the bush tax cuts for at
and his far right caucus may find the offer unacceptable, but president obama has put a lot on the table. nancy pelosi hit back at boehner's rhetoric today. >> the fact is, the president has and democrats agree, to $1.6 trillion cuts. where are the cuts? in bills that you, mr. speaker, have voted for. >> pelosi is lobbying for house republicans to hold a vote on letting tax cuts expire for the wealthiest americans. with house majority leader eric cantor and congressman paul ryan tasked with pushing boehner's plan on the tea party, it's going to be a tough sell. they are part of boehner's strategy team? in the meantime, the white house is hitting back at boehner and the gop tactics. >> a question of whether or not we have specific spending cuts, the answer is we have. i understand they may not agree with all of it. but it exists. >> i'm joined by illinois congresswoman january schakowsky joining us tonight. congresswoman, good to have you with us. >> thanks, ed. >> harry reid now says it's going to be awful hard to reach a deal by christmas. where is this all heading, in your opinion? >>
years. they were very, very close in the senate. president obama voted for a poison pill that took down a promising senate bill at the time. now he's coming back saying he wants to get it done. >> dr. jay talking politics as smooth as a lay-up. thank you for visiting with us. >> my pleasure. take care. >>> up next, a big development of president obama's trip to michigan today. the president steps in to a nasty statewide battle between the governor and big labor. why now? why not wisconsin? "the cycle" rolls on. questions? anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved! [ phillips' lady ] live the regular life. phillips'. with his wife, danielle, almost every weekend. derrell hasn't been able to visit his mom back east in a long time. [ shirley ] things are sometimes a little tight around the house. i wasn't able to go to the wedding. [ emily jo ] since derrell couldn't get home, we decided to bring home to him and then just gave
that bill right away making michigan the 24th state with the right to work. >>> yesterday president obama joined the chorus of voices condemning this move. >> by the way, what we shouldn't do, i just got to say this, what we shouldn't be doing is taking away your right to bargain for better wages. giving you the right to work for less money. >> nbc is live from lansing, michigan, and from detroit i'm joined by michigan democratic congressman gary peters. ron, i'm going to start with you. describe the scene for us there and what's at stake. >> reporter: good day to you. it just started snowing within the past few minutes. these folks are braving very cold temperatures here but they're very fired up about this legislation being pushed through the state house today. as you have reported it will turn michigan into a right to work state. republican governor rick schneider and other supporters of this legislation says it actually makes michigan more attractive for businesses around the country who may be considering relocating their businesses to michigan. workers are the ones you see behind me
. >> a fair competitor in '16 is going to be hillary clinton supported by bill clinton and presumably a still relatively popular president barack obama. trying to win that will be truly the super bowl. and the republican party today is incapable of competing at that level. >> joining me now, democratic strategist danielle gibbs. that's a pretty big admission. newt gingrich saying republicans would be incapable of beating hillary clinton in 2016. do you agree with your old boss, david? >> what he's saying is at this point given the way republicans are running campaigns, given what we just saw with governor romney campaigning and the couple of the senate campaigns, in terms of being able to be an effective political force, in terms of running a campaign against someone who's going to be that highly skilled, republicans have got a lot of work to do. so as a result it's not -- it's just not simply the tactical side. the voter lists and the data bases. it's the strategic side as well. remember, we made the strategic -- or the strategic decision was made by romney there was going to be a referendum
to please slow the process down, to stop the bills, or at least send them out for referendum. let the people have a say. president obama had a word with governor snyder at the airport in detroit yesterday. we don't know what they said. but later that day, president obama gave a speech about the economy and the middle class in which he came out strongly against a republican plan to weaken michigan's unions. >> what we shouldn't be doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better wages and working conditions. [ cheering ] >> we shouldn't be doing that. you know, these so-called right-to-work laws, they don't have anything to do with economics. they have everything to do with politics. >> across the state, democrats yesterday reminded governor snyder the bill was too divisive for michigan. he said that right up until last week when he called a hasty press conference to announce he had reversed his position and the legislation suddenly appeared as if by magic. the bills passed the first round of voting in roughly an hour and a half. this evening governor snyder announced that he ha
l. jackson, bill maher. go down the list. kobe bryant, what is he going to be? they've all done a lo a lot for obama. they should all get something. >> can i tell you the worst part? these celebrities get sent off, these big donors get sent off to a couple of these celebrity posts to be ambassador. >> then they're miserable. >> then we have to call them ambassador and your honor for the rest of their live. >> they bow down at ab i anna wintour. they bow down in the hallways at vogue. she has all the titles she needs. >> will it be secretary rice? >> i don't think so. all along i thought that was floated and it was interesting, but i don't see what they gain by putting her up now. >> i don't think the president -- he said today she's done a terrific job. i don't think the president likes to be criticized. >> i think in his mind she has done a terrific job. she went out and sold something that was untrue at a time where everybody pretty much knew it was untrue. she did a great job of doing that. again, whether it's anna wintour raising money for the president or susan rice, they're bot
of attention and emotion in michigan. we'll continue to watch it. as we know the governor can sign this bill making michigan the 24th right-to-work state in the country any moment. we'll keep you posted. rick: the obama administration is now cracking down on states refusing to comply with health care reform. the white house announcing any state that refuses to fully expand medicaid to required levels will not receive full funding under obamacare. this as we learn another state, tennessee, has joined more than a dozen others in opting not to create a state-backed insurance exchange. brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. brad, is this because the rollout with obamacare is not exactly going as planned? >> you bet. when only 13 states opt in to medicaid expansion. nine states say they won't. there are a bunch of states sitting on the sidelines freting how they will be able to absorb this kind of cost. it is economic duress on part of the administration. they feel only way they can expand their coverage is threatening the states with funds. fact the matter, rick, 70
, the white house did speak out against this bill last week. with the white house spokesman saying you know, speaking out against it and it's not the first time president obama has been against right to work legislation. you looked at what happened in wisconsin with governor scott walker. his attempt to take away collective bargaining rights and he's spoken out about this, too, saying that unions have helped the meddle class and that they've helped the american economy. >> alison kosik, live for us watching the impending crowds in lansing. stay with cnn today at 2:00 p.m. eastern, when president obama is set to speak live. we're also going to see if he has anything to say about exactly what alison was just reporting on and i have some breaking news. an update about the death of the navy s.e.a.l. in afghanistan that we brought you just about a half hour ago. the defense department is now sending out his identity. and he -- he was petty officer first class nicholas check. 28 years old of monroeville, pennsylvania. special op killed in action during that special forces mission to rescue an ame
's exactly what these bills do. this is not about helping the state in tough economic times. it is about destroying the unions. this is what president obama rightly said in detroit yesterday. >> obama: these so-called right-to-work laws they don't have to do with economics. they have everything to do with politics. it is giving you the right to work for less money. >> eliot: this is how governor snyder mischaracterized it. >> we'll get more and better jobs coming to michigan because we'll be more competitive. this is about being pro workers giving the workers a choice. it could be a positive for unions during the longer term. >> eliot: is this truly going to be a positive for unions then why were the police and firefighters exempted from the bill? my guess governor snyder wanted to keep the few unions that seemed to support him away from this bill. joining me now is michigan state representative and minority leader and former u.s. congressman from michigan mark shower who served in the michigan state legis
bills. but that was not possible. in fact, the obama administration's lack of transparency and failure to meaningfully consult with congress rendered that impossible. as we continue to try to work with the obama administration to develop policies and advance legislation which create economic growth and open new markets for u.s. workers and job creators, the administration must engage in meaningful consultations. accordingly, i would expect that the way that the tajikistan accession has been handled by the obama administration will be an exception and not the norm regarding future consultations. to help ensure that is the case, i will soon sending a letter to the office of the u.s. trade representative with some detailed questions regarding their consultations with congress and the private sector trade advisory committees. it is vitally important that we bring more transparency to this process, so i sincerely hope we receive a detailed and substantive response soon. i also hope we can soon begin t have a meaningful discussion with the administration about their plans for renewing trade
if these clashes continue. obama care tax hikes aren't going to just effect your medical bills. they might effect your pets as well. a new rule from the irs shows some medical devices used by vets will be hit by obama care's 2.3% device tax. that likely means higher vet costs because manufacturers will be raising prices. the tax applies to any device that is used for both people and for the pets. i'm trying to read this and look at these little animals. they are so cute. pet owners already spend more than $12 billion a year on vet care. let me tell you i do know that it's expensive to have animals. but they are so worth it. one new mtv show hasn't aired yet and already angered a member of the senate. >> our motto around here is whatever happens, happens. [ laughter ] >> oh my goodness. you are looking at a trailer for mtv's new show you would buck wire set to air on january 3rd. follows a group of young adults from west virginia much like the jersey shore did in new jersey. now a west virginia senator is trying to get it canned. democrat joe manchin has commission of the ftv instead of showing th
year. unfortunately, when people lose their jobs who work at a dental clinic as a billing specialist, or the courier loses their job they are working class folks that could lose their jobs if the president's tax increase goes there, if that happens, president obama will be responsible. by will not hurt growth in america which i know is the only way to solve this problem. >>neil: you do not subscribe that deal or no deal boomerangs and hurts republicans? >>guest: i don't want to go off the fiscal cliff which congress created in a bipartisan way. this fiscal cliff is the direct result of the last fiscal cliff when we had the debt limit showdown. >>neil: both sides agreed. >>guest: i voted again i. why create the artificial crisis as a way to force action? it never works. >>neil: bethis. they did. >>guest: and now they are going to do it again. they are saying, now, hurt growth in america, cut a deal that hurts growth in america so in a year from now we will have a worst fiscal cliff and that is the real fiscal cliff $16 trillion debt which the tax you have 200,000 less jobsve next year
it's sort of odd to hear mitt romney complaining that president obama got an advantage because he was for same sex marriage. not long ago that was a wedge issue bob dole was using against bill clinton. we made other environmentally. [ laughter ] >> thanks for invital us into your home tonight. that is it for this "special report" tonight. fair, balanced and unafraid. >> this is the fox report. tonight, a big bank to pay a huge fine. a record penalty. but no arrests. why exactly is that? plus, union protesters versus lawmakers over a right-to-work bill that's now the law. >> show me what democracy looks like. >> this is what democracy looks like. >> when you bring a right-to-work issues to michigan, the home of labor unions, i think you are itching to pick a fight. [shouting] >> our troopers are prepared for any civil disorder. [chanting] >> our state, our home. >> shepard: it's an enormously controversial measure. >> this legislation isn't about anything except an attack on workers' rights. >> it shouldn't be a condition of employment that you have to join a union and have to pay
, appropriation bill cannot be challenged by a referendum. john? >> john: mike tobin repor reporting in chicago. more with the panel. house speaker john boehner is taking it from all directions this week. president obama and democrats are ripping him for resisting tax hikes on the rich. boehner's own party is giving him a hard time for not resisting hard enough. chief political correspondent carl cam has a deeper look at -- carl cameron has a deeper look at that story. >> john boehner is trying to stave off conservative rebellion in the ranks. his proposal to steer clear of the fiscal cliff raising tax revenue $800 billion closing the loopholes outraged antitax conservatives. when the speaker removed the conserve priv key committees in the past, the battle began. >> $800 billion over ten years and that looks like it would be a tax increase to me. 238 republicans, myself included, took a pledge not to raise taxes. they want to send a message to me to send a message to others. that we are not going to tolerate people who are interested in doing what is right. we want to play the same old game. if
obama will get serious. tracy: the president's reelection leaving small businesses weigh more pessimistic about the future. bill dunkelberg is here. we will ask him what, if anything, to boost confidence among america's job creators. ashley: time for stocks now as a do every 15 minutes. let's head down to the call petallides. nicole: this is a pretty good day on wall street. this is looking like the fourth week where we are seeing gains. we did hear from house speaker john boehner. he smoothed it over and gave the sense that they are working hard in washington in order to solve the fiscal cliff. also, the dollar is lower. that is playing a part. most of the dow components have been in the green. trip advisor. we are watching trip advisor. it has been rallying. what they are trying to do is get in there. it would be more about changing some management. liberty acquired the share. this is part of the action here we are seeing. off its earlier highs. back to you. ashley: thank you very much. tracy: out to michigan where steel i didn't say lawmakers have just passed a right to wor

an historic bill that could drastically curb the power of unions in the state. president obama slammed the so-called right to work legislation during a visit there yesterday. >> what we shouldn't donie inii doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better working conditions. we shouldn't be doing that. you know, you know, these so-called right to work laws, they don't have to do with economics. they have everything to do with politics. >> to weigh in with her perspective is democratic state senator gretchen whitmer. congressional delegate met with the governor asking him not to sign the legislation. awe peeled directly to president obama. is there anything you can do at this point to stop it? >> i got to tell you the people are outraged not only is this anti-worker and anti-family, the way these republicans are going about it is anti-american. introducing it in a lame duck session at the 11th hour, locking people out of the capitol literally, that's what they did last week and tried to shut off my microphone. it is anti-american the way they're going about this and the reason th
by this weekend. so this weekend is the fiscal cliff. >> gretchen: because it takes a while to write the bills. >> eric: and has to originate in the house and right now, john boehner and president obama are miles apart allegedly. it doesn't look like they're gotting any closer. so it's got to go to the house, then gets sent, assuming it passes, to the senate, gets marked up and has to be agreed upon in committees and conference and then eventually gets signed by the president. >> steve: it just takes time. >> eric: there is a holiday. >> gretchen: somebody who had to handle something similarly about a decade ago was rudy guiliani when he was mayor of new york city. he was faced with a circumstance of do i raise taxes? do i cut spending? do i do a combination of both? he was on hannity last night explaining what he ultimately decided to do. >> i was given a report, report said, you have to raise taxes across the board. said nothing about reducing spending. and i said to myself, i wasn't an economic expert then. i became one after being mayor of new york. and i said, this doesn't make sense. if
his legacy for the next four years. >> well, both ronald reagan and bill clinton had strong legacies because they had strong growth in the second terms of their presidency. if barak obama has growth not much more than 2%, his legacy will be ashes. it's surprising to me that he is incapable of recognizing that and trying to put something in place that will bring the economy back to life. >> gretchen: read all about it in the "wall street journal." always a pleasure. >> thank you. >> steve: straight ahead, he joined the army after pearl harbor and then flew on missions to test the atomic bomb. up next, this world war ii veteran, he will share his incredible story. then they can't make a deal in the fiscal cliff. what do you know about your elected officials and what are they doing instead? passing a bill that bans -- had is big -- wait for it -- bans the word lunatic. that's crazy!
